We had supper there August 31, 2017. The pan-fried Haddock fillet with rice and vegetables was tasty and enjoyable. A good deal for $16.00. The service was friendly and fast. Had we had time we would have gone back.

Went for supper prior to show at Scotia Bank Centre. Great location near all the down town activities. Interesting menu. Friendly efficient service ( the place was packed by 5:30). Excellent food quality for a reasonable price.
